Nintendo Japan announced today that everyone’s favorite ‘super tough pink puff’ will be making his way to the Nintendo Wii once more, and in a form that will be more recognizable to fans of the classic Kirby games than his last outing might have been. Innovative titles like Kirby’s Epic Yarn (Wii), and Kirby: Canvas Curse (DS) are always more than welcome as far as I’m concerned as they’ve obviously made for very successful games, but I’m also happy to hear that a full-fledged console Kirby title is on its way and that it is a return to the conventional side-scolling style that my wife and I have enjoyed so much over the years.
Here’s what we know about the game so far:
また、星のカービィについては、昨年『毛糸のカービィ』を日本とアメリカで発売しましたが、据置型ゲーム機の吸って吐いて変身 する本編のカービィの新作について、大変長らくお待たせしていました。Wii向けの『星のカービィ』の新作を、ハル研究所のチームで開発しています。これ もムービーをご覧ください。
Ha, but seriously, thanks to a Japanese friend of mine this basically tells us that we can expect the return of classic Kirby to the Nintendo Wii and that we will see the game’s release (in Japan at least) in 2011. It also encourages us to check out the (tiny) video preview here, as the larger YouTube version looses a little something in the translation.
I’ll definitely be sure to update you with new info, such as the name of the game, once it becomes available. Can’t wait!
